HC Deb 24 May 1911 vol 26 cc261-2

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state in which Board of Trade publications the Report on the rise in German wages by the Schöneberg statistical office is incorporated; and if he will say why the contents of the Report were not included in the Fourth Abstract of Foreign Labour Statistics [Cd. 5415] issued this year?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Buxton)

It was not considered necessary to include the Report referred to in the Fourth Abstract of Foreign Labour Statistics, and it has not been incorporated, as such, in any Board of Trade publications; but, as I have already explained to my hon. Friend, the official statistics which appear in this book, and also official statistics of later date, have been utilised, so far as considered useful and practicable, in Board of Trade publications.
